Buying a new large appliance for your home or office can be a daunting task. For refrigerators alone, today's shopper will find an ever-increasing range of color and style options, some designed to disappear into the decor, and a wide variety of new smart features, including ones aimed at transforming the kitchen itself into an entertainment hub. According to CNET, the choices available can make one wonder if the ol' fridge might be going through a bit of an identity crisis. But how about safety? Are manufacturers protecting our health while innovating their design? This week, join our host, Stan Salot and his guest, JoAnn Emmel to discuss consumer choices when purchasing electronics and ways the industry can be engaged in addressing our common safety.
